This Says It All.....

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered.
Forgive Them Anyway
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motive.
Be Kind Anyway
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.
Be Successful Anyway
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you.
Be Honest and Frank Anyway
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight.
Build Anyway
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous.
Be Happy Anyway
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.
Be Good Anyway
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.
Give the World the Best you’ve got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis it is between you and God!
It was never between you and them…Anyway!

My mother-in-law shared this with me recently and I love it.  No idea who the author is so if anyone knows please let me know!

Thank you Janine (see comment) for letting me know the author of this fabulous quote is Mother Theresa.   Makes the quote even more inspirational!

  1. I have carried this in my wallet for the past 10 years. I read it often, especially when the world gets me down.

    Mother Theresa is the author.

    Thanks for sharing!
